Sketches of Transformers the Movie (2007) Optimus Prime have appeared online with a trailer addition added. TFClub.com posted pics in which it appears that Optimus's alt mode would include a modified trailer that when in robot mode, would combine with his cab/body. Seibertron.com can neither confirm nor deny the validity of this sketch and whether or not this is merely fan art, or real concept art for Transformers the movie part 2.

FP & C'd. Thats a great find. I tried an online translator to get something out of the post, but it made no sense in any translation. I tried Japanese, Chinese traditional and Simplified, but the characters were repetative and the translation made no sense whatsoever.

Cool pic...but I'm betting it's just a fan made thing...the cab is all red- not flamed out like movie Prime's altmode...

If it turns out to be real I will NOT eat my collection...

Cool, I got front paged.

But yeah everyone, heed that disclamer! This is just something I found on their site while looking for info on some of their upcoming releases.

I for one love the work these people are doing, and look forward to supporting there products in hopes that they can one day soon bring us something this cool!

Still, unless someone can translate the page, all I know is that it's a sketch I found :-?

It's definitely fan made. That's what these guys do.

Those sketches do look pretty cool. I got the Cliffjumper kit and it's awesome. If they keep up the same quality as that, and are able to get their stuff out to consumers easier, they're going to make a killing.

Thats really cool i wish i could get that but still just another rumor.

Looks so complicated. If it were an add on, i bet it'd be a b to transform. and from the pic, it looks that you'd have to take it apart and put it somewhere on the robot. that makes it kinda less impressive.

I'm guessing fan made thing.

It's still impressive though, but considering the movie was going for a realistic look then the trailer wouldn't fit that style.

looks fan made and it wouldnt make no sense if prime would decide to have trailer in the second film and not the first one prime would have taken a trailer in the first one if it was ment to be having a trailer just popup out of no where and not see it in the first one wouldnt make to muasch sense to character.

but the first one did have alot of surprises in it so i will be surprised if it makes in the film & not fan cration i see jet engins in back of trailer

Looks cool to me. Having the trailer combine with the cab is a nice way to update Prime's look in robot mode. Reminds me a lot of Powermaster Prime only without Hi-Q and a lot more complicated looking. Too bad it's probably just fan art.

Posted by Defcon! on April 21st, 2008 @ 6:16pm CDT
It looks pretty cool and reminds me a little of the Cybertron Prime with the guns on his arms. Minus the cab part that looks like wings. I like it though!

For the love of god please be true. Prime needs a trailer again.

since I'm sure nobody will bother to glance at this unless I do THIS, here goes *deep inhale* :

THIS IMAGE HAS BEEN FLOATING AROUND ON TFCLUB FOR SEVERAL MONTHS NOW, SO IT'S PROBABLY NOTHING MORE THAN A FAN IMAGE. IN FACT, THERE IS ANOTHER IMAGE ON THE SITE IN A SIMILAR ART STYLE OF 4 ROBOTS MADE TO RESEMBLE THE GUARDIAN CREATURES OF THE CARDINAL DIRECTIONS, NORTH SOUTH EAST AND WEST

Thank you :)

I like this, but I don't especially care for combining him with his trailer (along the lines of Armada Prime, Powermaster Prime, and...uh...I think maybe Star Convoy. (Correct me if I'm wrong but that's how it looks when I look Star Convoy up on Action-HQ.)
I kind of agree about needing a trailer though. Leader class Movie Prime could have had one at least, IMO. Using the trailer to form a sort of gestalt or super mode for Prime is just getting kind of redundant for me though.

My only problem with that line of thinking is that in the first one, they landed quick and went right into action. Wouldn't it stand to reason that by time TF2 rolls around, he'd have had enough time to develope something like this out of both bordome and nesecity?

Or are ye expecting the exact same designs in TF2 :roll: I can tell you right now that won't happen cause it'll sell less toys.

OK, is there a point to that all though, or are you just stating that a site has more than one piece of concept art?

Holy shit, that's badass

Posted by Rocketeer on April 21st, 2008 @ 7:07pm CDT
Well... my initial feeling is that it might be fanmade.
The reason is that there's no aero on top (that curvy thing that makes the wind go up over the trailer).
But that don't mean anything.

My gut feeling is...
Ultra Magnus!!!

Seriously, folks, take a look at that armor.
Note the guns and exaggerated pauldrons/shoulders.
Now picture it with blue and white.

Tell me that's not a Bay-ified Magnus.

(I can dream, can't I?) :roll:

EDIT:
Ran a few translators.
WorldLingo says:
The weapon and spraying engine packing box Pi Renxing the condition is protects the armor, the aircraft carrier prestige has moved.
Is I uses the camera as for third to rescreen in the family an old picture background is 15 years ago on my small time room wall
wall pastes at least fills on my picture that wall to be possible to distinguish has a picture is OP that is I 6 7 year old of or smaller time picture OP

this OP right leg also energyVaguely distinguished " supporting-heaven pillar " three character “to hold up the " character to on just preschool's children was character at that time I who difficult to write
difficultly to record already can make a mistake in writing


BabelFish is pretty much the same thing.
There's a slight difference, though...

Sounds like a guy wrote fan art of Prime.
But, again, that's just me.

I'm still holding out for an Ultra Magnus prototype.

Posted by Liege Evilmus on April 21st, 2008 @ 7:13pm CDT
Actualy(and correct me if I'm wrong) but the movie line is the first line in a long time that hasn't had a Magnus repaint.

I'd like to see it stay that way though, but a add on for Prime, even that tanker thats always on Ebay would be nice. After all they did go through the trouble of adding a hitch port :-?
Re: Movie Optimus Prime Possible trailer sketches found (685511)
Posted by Autobot032 on April 21st, 2008 @ 7:41pm CDT
The detail work is incredible, but the overall look and idea is terrible. I would hope that this remains a fanmade thing and not an actual piece for TF2. If Prime has to have a trailer, I'd prefer it would be a mobile storage container for Ironhide's weaponry.

SWEET! I repeat, sweet! If that is real concept art then I'm sure some people be happy campers seeing as that Prime doesn't have flames anymore.

haha, only that that artwork, as everyone else has already guessed, is simply a fanart. I first stumbled upon that piece sometime last year, along with the other artwork i described and then some, all by the same member of tfclub. fanart, nothing more, nothing less.
Re: Movie Optimus Prime Possible trailer sketches found (685544)
Posted by Liege Evilmus on April 21st, 2008 @ 8:46pm CDT
I knew right off that it has nothing to do with TF2, and trust me everyone, we are going to get a new Prime for that, otherwise they would have saved the Premium retool.

Another line of repaints wont put money in Hasbro or Paramounts pockets.

Still a concept piece founs on a site that sells garage kits...

Even for eyecandy sake, it was worth pointing out. I'm suprized it got front paged though. Hell I thought my line about BalckArachnia and Ratched being up on HTS would have made it befor this but whatever...

However I do have to say though, IF they made it, I'd buy it!

Pretty cool, but I prefer the version we've got already over this. If Movie Prime does get a trailer though, then Roller has to be a part of it.
Re: Movie Optimus Prime Possible trailer sketches found (685578)
Posted by UltraPrimal on April 21st, 2008 @ 9:51pm CDT
Looks like fan art to me. No flames and the trailer doesn't look very realistic.

this gives some ideas for ultra-magnus

You guys really are lazy,it takes,what,five minutes to check validity?
The autograph doesn't belong to anyone on the movie design team.
It's "just" beautiful fan-art.

ummm...so what exactly does he carry inside that trailer...I mean, he disguises himself as a normal truck to hide from others, then he carries a futuristic trailer??? it's rather conspicuous don't you think? #-o
Re: Movie Optimus Prime Possible trailer sketches found (685685)
Posted by masterpeice_skyfire on April 22nd, 2008 @ 6:13am CDT
This better be fan art.i bet it is cause the trailer in viehicle mode looks WAAAYYY too much like a trailer tf cartoon than the REAL thing.
Re: Movie Optimus Prime Possible trailer sketches found (685722)
Posted by Dead Metal on April 22nd, 2008 @ 8:52am CDT
dudes chill!
I think leage posted this cos he thinks and hopes this is a project from TFclub, you know the guys that made the classics Clifjumper upgrade set, and the upcoming Magnus and Prime trailers?

I think this looks awesome and would make for an awesome upgrade.

well honestly I think whether it's just a fan made thing, or it's the real deal, prime needs his trailer. and the big shots at hasbro should do it, atleast for the movie figures..if for no other future Primes.. I mean this movie is loosely based on the Original series,a dn as such, there should be soo much similarities in the toys and bot designs that the Live action series is just considered an upgraded and updated G-1.. so with that opinion said.. Make the trailer.. he needs a trailer..of all prime's that should get one, this movie version should get it..

Also I haven't seen crap around Virginia as far as the animated toys, the new Movie toys, the premium stuff.. not a damn thing.. we keep getting th left over crud that came out back when the restock boom hit.. because of the shortages.. I think Virginia is like 6 months behind any releases..because when others of you guys get stuff in other areas of the country, I don't usually see that stuff here in Virginia until like 6 month later.. and then it's very sparse pickins!!!!

I digress..


hmmmmmm could this design be the makings of the Apex Armor Prime?? i mean it would make sense that the Movie Version would get his trailer, but call it Apex armor, since they combined some stuff and changed some stuff.. why not just make the first trailer he gets into the Apex armor..I don't know, but I'm anxiously awaiting to see if this thing turns into a full blown usable Idea..

I think that the Bots should be toned down a bit in their kibble though..there's being realistic, and there's being too realistic..


Sorry guys I've been away for awhile..on Deviant Art..

Oh. This lame "Prime" image has been spammed all over the net.

We can see a mile away that it is fan made.

It's boring to find links to this thread in the internet. It's getting more irritant than Rick Rolling.
